You're just arguing that as long as Pepper isn't a superhero then all she'll ever be is a damsel. Pretty sure I and other have said she's managed to not be one without needing an armour of her own.

Why use her when you can feature a male hero with the same powers and name?
I think you're just being nonsensical here so you can downplay anyone who isn't interested in Rescue.
